Man City Remain Unbeaten, Defeat West Brom 3-2

Man City Remain Unbeaten, Defeat West Brom 3-2”

West Brom lined up with a very defensive lineup in an attempt to halt City's fine goal-scoring form, but the plan dismantled relatively quickly as Leroy Sane finished well to send the ball past a helpless Ben Foster.

Manchester City defeated West Bromwich Albion 3-2 at The Hawthorns on Saturday in one of the Premier League matches. Both of those sides went on to win the title.

West Brom's next game is a potentially tricky away fixture against newly promoted Huddersfield, who have already beaten Manchester United at the John Smith's Stadium.

Three minutes later, it was 1-1 when Gareth Barry chipped to Jay Rodriguez, who beat Ederson. Fernandinho was given time to set himself 20 yards out and his shot took a deflection off the studs of Gareth Barry's boot before bobbling in off the left-hand post. Kevin De Bruyne is selected, along with Bernardo SIlva and David Silva.

Grzegorz Krychowiak had another Albion chance shortly after the break when he spread the ball to Alan Nyom and advanced into the box to meet the full-back's cross with a tame header that was easily held by Ederson.

They were misses that came back to haunt the home side.

Raheem Sterling sealed the game in the second half after City had emerged with a slender lead from a whirlwind spell of three goals inside five minutes.

The visitors entered cruise control but Nicolas Otamendi could have made life a little hard in the closing stages, the centre-back just pulling out of a lunging challenge on Jake Livermore that could otherwise have earned him a red card rather than a yellow.

However, City appears to be taking nothing for granted at the moment as it produced another scintillating attacking display to restore its five-point advantage over second-place Manchester United.

City has 28 points from its opening 10 games, matching its own performance under Roberto Mancini in 2011 and Chelsea's record in 2005.

- Pep Guardiola's side have now won their last eight Premier League games by an aggregate score of 32-5.
